The center includes the new 86,000 square foot Utah Shakespeare Festival (USF) building which, houses the new open-air, 900-seat Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre, replacing the current Adams Theatre. Other significant program spaces are the Rehearsal Halls, Anes Studio Theatre, a flexible 200-seat black box theatre, actor support spaces, administrative offices, and a large costume production area.
The complex also features gardens, parks and exterior spaces for live performance and public use. The park-like setting incorporates native planting and is designed as outdoor rooms to accommodate uses ranging from intimate activities such as relaxing on a bench to gatherings of up to 300 people for impromptu live performances.
Anchoring the southwest corner is also the 28,000 square foot Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA). SUMA is a state-of-the-art museum hosting exhibitions from around the world and home to a special collection of the work by Utah artist, Jim Jones. SUMA also regularly exhibit work of Southern Utah University’s Art and Design students and faculty, and provide a venue for displaying regional artists and juried shows—making it a true cultural destination for theatre and the arts in Utah.
